Experience ARPAC

The Broadest Product Line in the Business

ARPAC LLC is your one stop shop for packaging solutions. We manufacture shrink bundlers, multipackers, horizontal shrink wrappers, corrugated tray and case erectors, box formers, corrugated board tray and case packers, pallet stretch wrappers and pallet stretch hooders. All ARPAC machinery is manufactured, serviced and supported in the USA. Because many customers have diverse packaging requirements within a single production line, ARPAC specializes in machines that integrate with one another to streamline production. In addition to its wide range of packaging equipment, ARPAC offers consulting services to help you design entire production lines, often seamlessly integrating our machines with those of other manufacturers. ARPAC has set up packaging lines that include depalletizers, labelers, conveyors, tray loaders, tray stackers, and shrink wrappers. Whatever your needs might be, ARPAC has a machine to suit them – and if you don’t see it here, we‘ll build it for you.

Having designed and built 30,000 machine installations worldwide, ARPAC offers tailor-fit packaging solutions for a variety of industries.

World-Class Customer Service

ARPAC will work with you to find the best packaging solution for your production line. Send in your samples to the ARPAC sample lab and our team will determine what machine best fits your product. ARPAC will develop your quotation by taking into consideration several factors including: product size and weight, line speed, film gauge, use of plain or print registered film, type of film enclosure, special requirements regarding package appearance and the ability to withstand rough handling.
